I always thought I was afraid of being wrong or making a mistake. Turns out I’m just afraid of being blamed for one.
I’d rather make a big mistake in private than a small blunder in public, and it’s not particularly close.
I don’t want to be seen as someone fallible or who can’t be trusted to get the job done.
If I’m not careful, I end up wasting my time and energy making sure that if anything goes wrong, it isn’t seen as my fault. That’s time and energy I could be spending trying to get the thing right in the first place.
How much time are you wasting?
